Victor Yelensky: The ROC's declaration of the "Holy War" is a document of degradation and schizophrenia

The Chairman of the State Service of Ukraine for Ethnopolitics and Freedom of Conscience (DESS), Victor Yelensky, has called the ROC order, where the so-called "special military operation" is referred to as a "holy war," a document of degradation and schizophrenia.

He made this statement on Radio Culture, as reported by the DESS website.

"There is a thesis that after this 'holy war' is over, obviously, with Russia's victory, Ukraine will finally fall under the total influence of 'holy Russia'... Those who monitor the ROC perceived this quite calmly because the level of degradation of the ROC and the level of degradation of its leader was no secret to us. This is a document that attempts to conceptualize the doctrine of the Russian world. It lacked chauvinism, as they believed; it lacked militarism; it lacked, I would say, schizophrenia. All of this is present now. Those scholars who said that the 'Russian world' is something amorphous, and we cannot criticize it because there is no concept, have now taken a step towards this conceptualization," - noted Yelensky.

"Overall, it seems to me that the authors of this concept, of course, made a good bid for The Hague," - he added.

Recall that on March 27, 2024, in the Hall of Church Councils of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, under the chairmanship of the head of the VRNS, Patriarch of Moscow Kirill, the XXV World Russian People's Council "The Present and Future of the Russian World" took place. Its participants approved a document in which the "special military operation" was called a "holy war for the right to live on 'own land'."
